When Disney+ launched near the end of last year, one of the biggest selling points for the new streaming service was a collection of original Marvel TV shows that would tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Almost one year later, all of these shows have yet to debut although WandaVision is looking likely to be the first to arrive this December. Other Marvel shows expected in the near future include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and an animated What If…? series, but beyond that there are a handful of others shows in the works, some of which will introduce new characters to the MCU. One of those characters is She-Hulk and in the span of a few days, the show has landed a director and a star. Hit the jump to find out what we know.
According to Deadline, Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany is in final talks to star in the upcoming Disney+ live-action series She-Hulk. Maslany would play Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who inherits his powers after receiving an emergency blood transfusion from him. This news comes on the heels of the announcement that director Kat Coiro (Marry Me) will direct the pilot and several other episodes of the show and will also act as executive producer.
The show has been in development for a little while now with Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) heading up the writer’s room. It was initially announced at D23 last year along with Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight series. It has been rumoured that Mark Ruffalo will appear in the show in some capacity although it is unclear if She-Hulk herself might eventually appear in the Marvel movies as well. Do you think Tatiana Maslany is a great choice to play She-Hulk?
